Hello everyone! Another Sunday has rolled around and the theme for the buffet this week is Birthdays and/or Celebrations! I chose this as its my birthday on Tuesday and thought it would give me a chance to have a go at something "over the top"! Also, (luckily!) an unexpected trip to TK Maxx found me buying the Color Club Girl About Town collection, which provided me with two polishes perfect for what I had in mind!
I started with a base of Color Club Pearl District, a gold with a warm Tigers Eye feel to it. Three coats for a beautiful finish and it was tempting to leave it there as I adore this colour (and I'm not a massive fan of gold polishes)! I then painted on randomish sections of deep purple to create a base for the simply stunning The Uptown, which has a purple jelly base crammed full of red, gold and other flakie delights. I thought the formula would be a problem but it went on beautifully. Once that was dry, I added the amber colour rhinestones on to a generous coat of Seche Vite.
Now you can see why I said that these were "one night only" nails! I'm in love with them though and I'm so glad that I chose this collection over the metallics that were also there (although in all honesty I'll probably be going back for those later this week!).
I think these are suitable for a celebration, and when I fall asleep on my hand at the end of the night I'll get to wake up with a myriad of pretty rhinestone patterns on my face too ;)
Next week our theme is Hearts - yes its predictable, but I want to see where I can go with it. Take a look at the links below to see all the other fabulous celebratory nails, and if you;d like to join us, we'd love to have you on board! Head over to the FB group, and join in as often as you want :)
